I think the last time anyone has ever used a physical torch to find their earphones, keys, or contact lens case was eons ago–before phones with LED flashes were invented. Now if we have to navigate or find something in the dark, we just whip out our phones, turn on their LEDs and sweep the floor with their gloriously powerful light. Of course, we all know that torches are actually better at being torches than our phone’s measly LEDs, but one can dream right?
But rather than dreaming about it, why not try out a mod developed by XDA Recognized Developer olokos which cranks up the brightness of your Sony Xperia Z1’s LED to “full”? The mod comes in a ZIP package which only needs to be flashed through a custom recovery. As expected however, by installing such a mod which significantly increases the LED’s brightness, it would be wise to not leave it on an extended period of time as it may break the LED. This mod isn’t only for the Xperia Z1 however, as it may also work on the Z1 Compact, Z1S, Z2, and Z3.
So, if you’re keen on increasing the brightness of your phone’s LED brightness, head over to the LED boost thread to get started.
